ANNOUNCEMENT How to Get Paid to Post on These Forums

EarnThatBuck started as a place to learn and discuss money money opportunities online. However, I've come to realize that the real innovative idea here is that using our system, people CAN and SHOULD be paid for writing content and engaging in discussion.

And in reality, we've found that with a lot of discussion-based websites like Quora and Reddit, they can cover a wide range of topics and still be very successful.

So that's what we're doing, except we give YOU the money back for the value you bring to the table.

The EarnThatBuck System - How it Works

1. Go to your user preferences and enter in a Paypal account email.
2. Post great content.
3. Get paid based on the value you generate, as soon as you hit $10 in one month (we don't have the manpower to handle tiny payouts). Value is determined with a combination of the search traffic your content brings to the site as well as the niche of the forums you post in. We overall attribute 50% of the site's earnings back to the forum users.


Q: Where can I see my earnings?

A: All earnings are reported here: Earnings Leaderboard. We are fully transparent on all the earnings of our users, that way you can message each other and verify payouts, etc.

Q: Is 50% of Earnings Good?
A: Sharing 50% of earnings with users is incredibly good. Most sites that allow you to post will pay you a flat rate of a few cents. In our case we give our users a share of revenue! Why? Because our priority is to get a lot of great content and to have continued engagement over time.

Q: What topics can I write about?
A: You can write content that matches any category or forum available on the site, but you can also help us establish new forum topics by asking in the Discord Channel. However, we do require that you come prepared with 5 threads written out for that new topic in order to get it kick-started successfully!

Q: Can moderators delete my posts?
A: In order to maintain high organic rankings, we maintain a high standard of content. Our initial review of content may lead us to mark content as spam, or request you add in more details.

That being said, once your content is ranking and bringing in entrances, there is absolutely no fear of your posts being deleted. At worst, we'll move your thread to another forum category, but this should not have any direct effect on the entrances your content is bringing in or the amount of money you make.

Q: What is Great Content? What do Moderators Look for?
A: Our guidelines for new threads, posts, etc are all based around having the most healthy website from an organic ranking perspective.
  • Threads need to be lengthy to rank in Google. Realistically a minimum of 500 words is recommended. If the OP (original post) isn't lengthy, it has to be a question or something to drive further replies and discussion to get overall thread content above 500 words. If it is short, and not likely to lead to specific discussion, we'll hide the thread and ask you to provide more details. One hack to easily write more content is to add an FAQ to the bottom of the OP, and answer general questions about the subject at hand. The other hack is to use the "secret-method" talked about in our Discord.

  • Threads need to be original. Try not to answer the same questions other people have already written about on this site unless you provide a unique and in-depth perspective from a different angle. Also any attempt at copying content or spinning content will result in an instant ban from the site. Do not post content that is found anywhere else on the web.

  • Threads should be formatted well. Nobody likes a wall of text. Add bold headlines, number lists, and other formatting to make the post interesting.

  • Other quality factors that'll make your post rank really well on Google:
    • Spend a lot of time on the headline to make it highly attractive in search. One formula that seems to work well is "Subject + Benefit"
    • Add links to external high-quality resources like 3rd party studies and research.
    • Add links to internal threads on EarnThatBuck when relevant.
    • When you have new ideas, come back to your thread, edit it, and add more content. Also make sure to follow up any time you get a reply to your thread.
Q: Do only threads earn money, or can reply posts earn money as well?
A: We record the top author of any given page, which 9/10 times will be the person who started the thread. If, for whatever reason, page 2 of a thread gets qualified entrances, the person who posted the topmost reply of that page will get credit for the entrance (do to how the HTML determines the author on any given page).

However, you can and should leave quality replies to any thread you're interested in. This helps establish your authorship on the forums, (post count, trophies, etc). More importantly, when it comes to SEO a rising tide raises all boats. If you add content to someone else's thread, and Google determines that thread to be high-authority, some authority may flow to your threads automatically just by participating!

Q: How long does it take to start driving qualified entrances?
A: For a brand new site with new content, it'd take 8 months for new content to ramp up in rankings. However, because EarnThatBuck has established content and a great interlinking internal content structure, it shouldn't take new content more than a week to see it's first results, and a couple months to establish decent rankings. However this all depends on the subject matter, quality and length of content, and competition from other authors and sites.

The more high-quality content you write, the higher likelihood that one will rank within the next few days.
